【Lyrics Translation】 Taniguchi (c.v. Shiraishi Minoru), The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya New Character Song Vol.7: Taniguchi

It’s been so long since I’d worked on any lyrics by Aki Hata that I’d forgotten why her stuff has a reputation for giving translators trouble (past-me included); let’s just say that this song was a slight refresher. Well, it was really just one line that gave me trouble, but Taniguchi’s not the most complicated guy, so one might have hoped this single would be all safe. The rest of the song was actually fairly fun to work with.

As a Friend
Lyrics: Hata Aki
Composition / Arrangement: Kikuya Tomoki
Vocals: Taniguchi (c.v. Shiraishi Minoru)

Why is it that even when we’re completely fooling around,
You don’t laugh at all and just have that grumpy look?
The way you randomly start running and shouting out of nowhere,
You’ve been acting weird lately – don’t look away!

Did you get a crush on someone? Is that what this is?
If you don’t feel like talking about it…

Well, for now, join me on a little side trip today.
‘Sup! I’m always down to go hit on some girls.
It’s boring to brood on and on.
Come on, your shoulders and belly and forehead are all tense – let’s relax!

You don’t notice at all if I try to sneak up on you,
And I hear you letting out a sigh,
But there’s no sign that you plan on asking for advice,
And it’s depressing if you straight-up refuse.

I can’t keep on pretending to not know even if I try!
I’m just not good at not saying anything.

This is really a pain – let’s drop the discussion for now.
Okay then! We’re going outside – sunny skies, everything’s good.
Staying swamped and doing nothing just makes you melancholy.
I’m sure I’ll figure out later on what this is all about, one way or the other.

Well, for now, join me on a little side trip today.
‘Sup! I’m down to lead you to some cool little-known spots.
It’s boring to brood on and on.
Come on, your shoulders and belly and forehead are all tense – let’s relax.
Later on, all of this will become a fun little joke in its own way!

Tomodachi to Shite wa Sore ga
Lyrics: Hata Aki
Composition / Arrangement: Kikuya Tomoki

Sanzan fuzakete mo warawazu ni
Mutto shiteru no wa naze nanda
Kyuu ni hashittari sakendari
Saikin okashii ze yoko muku na

Suki na yatsu dekita no ka sou na no ka?
Iitaku nai tte na kibun nara

Kyou toriaezu yorimichi tsukiae yo
Uussu! nanpa nara itsudatte ookei
Moyamoya kangaete mo tsumaranai shi
Hora kata mo heso mo deko mo kotteru na chikara nukou ze

Zenzen kidzukanai shinobiashi
Futto tameiki ga kikoete mo
Soudan suru tsumori nasasou de
Kippari kyohirarecha ochikomu sa

Shiranu furi tsudzukete mo tsudzukanai!
Damarikonde tte no nigate da na

Mou mendou da~ hanashi wa oitoite
Yoosshi! dekakeru ze soro wa hare oorai
Gudaguda jitto shiterya yuuutsu ni naru
Mata ato de sore ga nani ga docchika ni kimaru hazu da ze

Kyou toriaezu yorimichi tsukiae yo
Uussu! anaba e to goannai ookei
Moyamoya kangaete mo tsumaranai shi
Hora kata mo heso mo deko mo kotteru na chikara nukou ze
Mata ato de sore wa sore de chotto shita neta ni kawaru tte!

友達としてはソレが
作詞:畑亜貴
作曲・編曲:菊谷知樹
歌:谷口(c.v. 白石稔)

散々ふざけても笑わずに
ムッとしてるのは何故なんだ
急に走ったり叫んだり
最近おかしいぜ 横向くな

好きなヤツできたのか そうなのか?
言いたくないってな気分なら

今日取りあえず 寄り道付きあえよ
うーっす! ナンパならいつだってオーケイ
もやもや考えても つまらないし
ほら肩もヘソもデコも こってるな力抜こうぜ

全然きづかない忍び足
フッとためいきが聞こえても
相談するつもりなさそうで
きっぱり拒否られちゃ 落ち込むさ

知らぬフリ続けても 続かない!
黙りこんでっての苦手だな

もう面倒だっ 話は置いといて
よーっし! 出かけるぜ外は晴れオーライ
ぐだぐだじっとしてりゃ ゆううつになる
また後でソレがナニが どっちかに決まる筈だぜ

今日取りあえず 寄り道付きあえよ
うーっす! 穴場へとご案内オーケイ
もやもや考えても つまらないし
ほら肩もヘソもデコも こってるな力抜こうぜ
また後でソレはソレで ちょっとしたネタに変わるって!

  1. Are you just releasing some of the stuff you had lying around or are you trying to do one every day now xD?

    • Both, honestly. A little while back I did like ten song translations in two days in a fit of madness, and I’m only just getting around to putting them on the site. Hoping it will lead to better things.
